Q. What safety wear should be used?

We always recommend using heat resistant rubber gloves, safety goggles and an apron when loading or unloading the tank with utensils.

Q. What is the residue that sometimes stays on the equipment?

In certain areas with very hard water, the liquid can react with the calcium in the water, and leave a residue on the equipment being cleaned. This residue is harmless.

Q. Should the electricity supply be disconnected under normal use?

Even at times when you have nothing in soak, you should keep the power switched on. To reheat the solution to operating temperature will cost considerably more in electricity than maintaining the temperature.

Q. Can I still use the solution after it is cooled down and has been reheated?

Yes. But care should be taken not to allow the liquid to cool down as to reheat it to the operating temperature will take time.

Q. Is the solution sate to dispose of in the drain?

Yes, the solution is biodegradable. There are no harmful chemicals and it is broken down into organic material.

Q. Will the solution kill bacteria?

As the Spectank® system runs at over 88°c, all harmful bacteria will die in the Carbsolve® solution, so all items removed from the Spectank® will be sanitized.

Q. Will Carbsolve® damage silicon or teflon coatings?

Items left in the Spectank® longer than 24 hours and cleaned too often will over time lose their coating. Items already damaged and placed in the Spectank® will cause the chemical to “lift” coatings away from the metal surface.

Q. How often does the water need to be changed in the Spectank®?

The solution in the tank including the Carbsolve® will last for a month at a time, only the surface needs to be “skimmed” every few weeks to remove surface fats and oils if necessary.

Q. Can I put aluminum in the Spectank®?

Yes, Carbsolve® is tested non-corrosive to aluminum.

Q. What is the detergent used in the Spectank®?

It is a mixture of Carbsolve®, a proprietary mix of 13 chemicals to aid in decarbonising, and water.
